    In 2001, I had an idea for “the emotional remote control”. My friends all gave me no end of shit about it. As did my lady, thought she claims otherwise.

    I’m glad to see somebody running with it. I’m not bitter or anything. Maybe I need to turn down the ego.

    I am amazed by what my 2.5 year old and 7 month old are able to do with the tv remote. The mind reels at what they might do given the tools to control people.

    Gah, maybe I need to lighten up, but I hate stuff like this. I think it’s cliche, sexist, and gives people excuses to be mean to each other. The fact that people find this kind of stuff funny makes me sad.

    Yeah, I definitely need to lighten the eff up.

    Hi Maggie! I thought you might like to hear about my mom, who I entered for the tech makeover. Her name is Andi Stern, I think you linked to her story?

    Anyway, she applied for an eBay award, a thing I don’t really understand, beyond the fact that eBay gives money to people with good ideas and not much in the capital area so that they can buy things like laptops and software and printers and what-not. She got it! She now has a really awesome laptop and is no longer tied to our dial-up and is still really geeked out about getting it, since she just bought it Friday.

    Here is her blog if you want to check it out: http://andibeads.blogspot.com/ Hope you and your family had an awesome Thanksgiving!

    what is even funnier, is the price difference! whaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Men clearly are stuck in low paying jobs, theirs is priced at a reasonable $9.99 while ours is double that, to obviously reflect our much higher paying jobs and all that fab status. whaaa!!! ;)
